•California-based Ballast Point is introducing a new flavored India Pale Lager (IPL), Orange Vanilla Fathom. Rolling out in 22-ounce bottles and on draft, Orange Vanilla Fathom is a 7%-abv IPL that is billed as a warm weather brew that is reminiscent of “a creamsicle in a glass.” Ballast Point, acquired by Constellation last year for $1 billion, saw depletions rise more than 60% in Constellation’s recently completed first quarter, ended in May.
•Hawaii’s Maui Brewing has partnered with Cavalier Distributing to enter Indiana and Ohio. Maui Brewing is launching its flagship Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, Coconut Hiwa Porter and Pineapple Mana Wheat labels, as well as seasonal and limited edition offerings, across both markets. The move brings the brewer’s U.S. footprint to a total of 17 states. Established in 2005, Maui Brewing expects to brew around 45,000 barrels this year, and recently expanded its production facility, growing its annual capacity to nearly 100,000 barrels.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
